  3. Hi Teresa... you are so generous with your time and knowledge. I taught myself to crochet by viewing your youtube pages... You are an inspiration, so much so that I've started my own blog!! Keep up the great work. P.S: I'm going to have a go at this baby beanie next week while I am on holidays!! Lx

  5. nice.

    have you ever come across a thread crochet beanie pattern? I tried thread crochet using a yarn pattern and I ended up with a yamulke. Additionally, I could not figure out the correct increment gauge.

    thanks.

  6. King Leo,
    I have never made one out of thread but I can put it on my "to do" list. Once I get something put together I will share it.

  7. How can I size the hat up and down? Also, do you have a pattern for this beanie but with how to add ear flaps? That would be real cute. sargcity6@yahoo.com

  8. SARGENTS,
    You can use a larger hook to make the cap larger. You can add more increase round to make the cap larger. I have half circles that can be added as earflaps.

  9. Hi Teresa!
    You're great! Thanks for sharing this pattern and for showing how it's made. I'm a beginner and taught myself so I need a lot of help! I want to make this beanie cap for my baby boy due in December, how can I size it down to make it a newborn size?
    Thanks for your help!!!!

  10. Pepita,
    You can use a smaller crochet hook or you can make a smaller cap by eliminating increase rounds. Just continue the cap for the length after the second to the last increase round. It may or may not be the right size, so there will be some trial and error in adjusting sizes.

  11. Thank you!! Just made a hat for the first time using this! And it only took a few hours (while only half paying attention!). So excited!

  12. Hi- I really love your blog and all your videos! I am self learning- well you are teaching me really! I decided last week I wanted to learn to crochet, picked up some yarn (4 worsted) and a hook (I) and got to work. I found your site and started on this hat. It took me a minute to get the rounding but once I did I was off to a great start. I am not sure what my problem is though- it seems like I start caving at round 5. I mean major caving, I could use my little beanie as a thumb warmer ;) Do you think this is because my hook is too large? Tension too tight maybe? I tried starting over last time to see if I stiched looser if it would help- no such luck.
    Thanks so much for your help and your wonderful blog!!! I LOVE IT!
    You are not only teaching me to crochet, you are getting me hooked. I cannot wait to make some of the cool things you make on here!

  13. Hi I LOVE your videos and instructions! Thanks for helping me in my conversion from knitting to crochet! I WAS a knitter but now prefer crochet as it is more relaxing and easier on my hands.
    MY QUESTION: regarding "individual rounds" vs "continual". What type of "round" is the written instructions referencing? (I am using self striping yarn and want to use the correct technique).

Now I need to master the booties. YOU ARE A BLESSING THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

  15. I have made 2 of these and absolutely love them! I was just wondering what I would need to do to make the beanie bigger (say for a toddler and adult)?

  16. I would like to make one of your darling hats with stripes, where can I find the directions for making it with individual rounds vs. the continual rounds. I tried adding a stripe using the continual round instructions and the stripe doesn't line up. Help!
    Thank you so much for your cute pattern!

  17. Hi! I just wanted to know how much yarn this project needs.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Grace:

    I've found that it depends on your type of yarn, your tension, the size of your hook...

    I used a bigger hook and bigger yarn to make two adult hats, and they both used about 3-4oz of yarn (1/2 to 3/4 a standard size). I also have a tighter tension, so it depends.

    It's a rule of thumb, however, to always buy extra and any leftovers could be used to make another hat, make a flower, etc.

    Hope this helps!

  19. Hi Teresa
    Thanks for the amazing tutorial and pattern. I am trying to teach myself to crochet preemie beanies for a volunteer project and was wondering how I could adapt this pattern for preemies. Would greatly appreciate some advice.

    Thanks for your generous sharing.

  20. Hi Teresa. I am just a beginning crocheter, so I think I'm doing something wrong. When I got to the part in the pattern that says just single crochet until you get your hat length, I did that and instead of just going down the hat is also getting wider. Please help.

    1. It sounds like you have continued to increase

  21. What would happen if you use 4 ply worsted weight yarn for this pattern?
    Thank you

  22. Hi, thank you so much for such a perfectly detailed video. The clear step-by-step really helps. This is my first time crocheting in the round with directions that make sense. Thank you!

    I have a question about size. The newborn I'm crocheting this for has a head size of 13 inches (I guess I should aim for 6 1/2" per your measuring. At the end of line 10, I feel like my beanie top is too small, it's only measuring 4 inches--my stitches do seem to be very tight. Should I keep increasing every other row until I get to around 6 1/2" wide, or will it continue to get a bit bigger around as I go?

    Thanks so much.

  23. Hi Teresa, I love to look at your crochet tutorials when I need help. I want to use this pattern, but my yarn is DK weight. I was wondering if I should add stitches to it to adjust for the size of the yarn since your pattern is for worsted and if you knew about how many?
